The story about how sperm whales are doing their bit to combat climate change through their poo made me smile this morning. It’s one of those small random facts that makes you think ‘wow, the world is an amazing place!’ while also wondering who on earth would think it had been intelligently designed. Saving the world with poo is not very poetic.
We’ve got cows, who are causing problems with their farts, and whales, who are saving the world with their poo. It’s the circle of life! Or something…
Maybe it’s just that our puny human brains are too small to understand the grand plan behind it all. But I think our problem is the fact that we feel like there should be grand plan in the first place.
Either way, it’s always nice to be reminded how much we don’t understand. The more we know, the more there is to know (thank goodness for that).
